Hudson River Greenway

The greenway along the Hudson River is one of the most popular places to ride. It offers beautiful water views and a dedicated bike path that is closed to car traffic.

This two-lane bike path runs along the West Side of Manhattan, parallel to the Hudson River. Grab a bike at one of the many stations along 11th or 12th Avenue, and ride south toward Battery Park or north toward Riverside Park.

Here's a suggestion for our favorite ride:

  • Pick up a Citi Bike at the 12 Ave & W 40 St station, right near the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
  • Ride south, along the western side of Manhattan, with the water on your right.
  • Drop your bike off at the West St & Chambers St station.
  • Continue on foot a few blocks further south to the One World Observatory or the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
